Democrats used to be the party of Bad Ideas. Now it’s the party of Bad People.
If you don’t believe me, let’s just take a look at some of the leaders, new representatives, movements, and individuals that call themselves “Democrats.”
Barack Obama – the great Divider-in-Chief. He left the country far more racially-divided than he found it in 2008. Five months after he took office in 2009, he couldn’t help but comment on a news story he saw – where a black Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, was arrested for trying to break into his own house. Without knowing the facts, President Obama commented at a prime time press conference: “”I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That’s just a fact.” The facts were that the police acted in full accordance with proper procedure, and that it was Gates itself who obstructed the police by accusing them of being racist by asking for proof that he in fact lived at the residence and then refusing to show identification. The Cambridge Police Department insisted that Obama apologize for casting the officer, the department, and the police in general, in a disparaging and racist light, which he did. The impact and fall-out couldn’t have been worse – the beginning of the Black Lives Matter. Obama made things worse when again, without knowing the facts (because the mainstream media wasn’t providing the facts), he took the side of Travon Martin in the Travon Martin – Zimmerman incident (resulting in Martin’s shooting death). We all remember how the media kept showing a young, sweet-faced, innocent-looking grade school age Travon, which prompted Obama to comment: “He could be my son.” The reality was that Travon was a big, thug-looking, drug-taking high school student who was prone to violence and in fact, had been expelled or suspended from school because of it. It was he who sought out Zimmerman that fateful night, beating him to a bloody pulp, breaking his nose and causing blood to fill his lungs, which caused him to find his gun and shoot Travon in self-defense. Again, the real facts were ignored by Obama. And the Black Lives Matter Movement became stronger and stronger, and more violent. Many police lives were taken for no other reason than the Black Lives Matter movement inspired the killings. And race relations took two generations backwards. I’m not suggesting that Barack Obama did anything intentional, but his actions were reckless and he should have anticipated the violent response by black communities.
Bill and Hillary Clinton – serial criminals. They haven’t encountered a law they haven’t broken, and in the case of Bill, there isn’t a woman he’s encountered that he hasn’t tried to have sex with or wanted to have sexual relations with. As Secretary of State, Hillary used her position to enrich herself, her husband, and her foundation in order to prepare for her presidential campaign. She engaged in a “pay-to-play scheme where she promised foreign leaders, foreign companies, global players favors with the US government and with our laws in return for personal (financial) aggrandizement. She arranged to sell Russia most of our Uranium in return for speaking engagements and huge donations to the Clinton Foundations. In other words, she sold out American interests for Clinton interests. Bill and Hillary are the quintessential political elite – believing they are better, smarter, and above the law. In 2016, Hillary honestly believed she was entitled to the presidency, and she probably continues to believe that.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer – the chief obstructionists in government. Pelosi, as House Speaker, is commandeering that chamber to obstruct Trump in every way, shape, and form (simply because he won the presidency, frustrating Democrats’ plans to continue control of the government, the Swamp, and the Deep State). And Schumer, the cry-baby of the Senate, is commandeering that chamber against Trump. They had the nerve, in their rebuttal to President Trump’s appeal to the American people from the Oval Office, to accuse him of trying to get support for his wall by creating fear through a “manufactured crisis” at the southern border. After all the deaths at the hands of illegals, after all the seizures of deadly drugs crossing the border (fentanyl being the worse), after the increase in the brutal MS-13 gang activity (comprised almost entirely of illegals), after data showing an alarming amount of human trafficking across the border, and after the caravan fiasco and a 37% increase in aliens flooding over the border illegals, Pelosi and Schumer had the nerve to dismiss the situation at the border as nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.” They called the wall immoral, yet themselves live in gated, walled communities. They enjoy the security provided by a wall in their own lives, but believe the American people should not be entitled to that in their lives. When a reporter scaled the wall to Pelosi’s house, the House Speaker had her arrested; I guess, the reporter wasn’t entitled to the sanctuary provided by Pelosi’s property. When Angel Mom’s visited Pelosi’s office and Schumer’s office, they refused to meet with them. To me, that is immoral.
Rep. Maxine Waters – or better known as “Mad Max.” Maxine is the “non-thinker’s representative.” She encouraged supporters to harass Trump administration officials whenever and wherever they find them. “Make them feel like they don’t belong.” Imagine telling a group of Americans – taxpayers – that they don’t belong in the country they pledge allegiance too. Of course, Democrats were all-too happy to oblige and harass our government officials in their private time, with their families, at restaurants, at movies, etc. Aside from her antics, her dishonorable conduct, and being voted the most corrupt member of the US Congress for many years, she is a notorious race-baiter and race hustler.
Rep. Roshida Tlaib – the new Muslim representative from Michigan. After taking the oath of office, she told her supporters: “We will impeach the Mother F***er!” Tlaib not only has no understanding of the US Constitution (for nowhere in it are members of Congress given the authority to impeach a president simply because they don’t like him), but she hopes one day to see the total destruction of Israel.
Rep. Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio – the new representative from New York. She is another “non-thinker’s representative.” Cortez-Ocasio is not only a dull-brained, uninformed, unprepared representative, she is also an avowed socialist who believes the government should provide everybody everything for free. (She apparently is unaware of the studies of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven who predicted, back in 1966, that one day, welfare alone will overwhelm our system and cause it to crash). But she is photogenic and loves the camera.
Senator Elizabeth Warren – aka, “Pocahontas.” Warren lied about her heritage, claiming she has Indian blood in her, in order to take advantage of the affirmative action hiring benefit for the protected minority group. It is one thing to lie but another, far worse thing, to misappropriate an opportunity that has been set aside for someone who has actually been the victim of past discrimination or the victim of policies that at one time put a group of people at a great disadvantage for social equality. And that is what Warren did. The path of that gross misappropriation put her on a path that ultimately put her in the position to run for the US Senate.
Senator Cory Booker – aka, “Spartacus.” As a member of the Black Caucus, he is a race-baiter and was one of the members of the Senate who helped turn the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings into a circus and to bring dishonor to the body in general. At the Hearing, he was going to put everything at risk, he said, even his place in the US Senate, and break the rules. He would release confidential documents that he believed would expose Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh as a supporter of racial profiling. Oh how excited he was. He was flushed with pride at being able to have such a moment – his “Spartacus moment.” Who can forget what he said, and with a straight face too: “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.” Rather than being a dramatic moment, one that would be the revelation to tank Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation, it ended up being nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt (and a great source for some pretty funny political memes!!)
Senator Dick Durbin – He admitted to plotting, along with Richard Blumenthal and other Democrats, to disrupt the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. He sided with Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault without any corroborating witnesses or without any evidence, and his line of questioning reflected that. In fact, even though Kavanaugh proclaimed his innocence in the alleged incident, provided what seemed to be an air-tight alibi (with the calendar/diary he kept during the alleged time period), and had already been screened by the FBI at least 5-6 times already, he called for an FBI investigation into Ford’s allegations.
Senator Richard Blumenthal – a particularly slimy Democrat. Like Durbin, he admitted to plotting to disrupt the Kavanaugh hearing, and like Durbin, he took Ford’s side in the matter of her allegations of sexual assault. Blumenthal had the audacity to lecture the honorable, squeaky-clean Supreme Court nominee on the implications of telling even a single lie, when he himself had not been truthful as a public servant. For 15 years, he claimed not only that he served in the Vietnam War, but that he served in the notorious Da Nang province, which was where some of the bloodiest fighting took place. He did not serve in the Vietnam War. In fact, he requested 5 times to defer service. It was this lie that prompted President Trump to nickname him “Da Nang Dick.” That name appears to be so true on many levels.
Senator Dianne Feinstein – cunning as she is ignorant of what is protected by the Second Amendment. Feinstein intentionally withheld information about Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her back in college in order to release the accusation at the most opportune moment during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. She held onto a letter that Ford had written, not sharing it, and most importantly, not putting Ford in contact with law enforcement or lawyers who could address her claims; her interest was making sure that the revelations in the letter did maximum damage to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s chances of being confirmed to the Supreme Court. She had no concern for the American principle that a man is presumed innocent until proven guilty and she had no qualms about destroying the reputation and character of a loving family man, model citizen, and honorable public servant. She put the politics of personal destruction over her duty to be honorable in reviewing a nominee to the Supreme Court. Most recently, she introduced legislation to ban 205 different weapons. (Many other Democratic senators co-sponsored, including Senators Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris)
Senator Bob Menendez – from New Jersey, who was indicted on a slew of federal corruption charges.
Keith Ellison – former US congressman from Minnesota (2007-2019) and now, the state’s Attorney General. He was a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and another race-baiter in Congress. In 2006, during his first run for Congress, Ellison admitted that he had worked with the notorious anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, for 18 months leading up to the October 1995 Million Man March. In 2005, a picture emerged of then Senator Barack Obama and then Rep. Ellison with Farrakhan. Apparently, members of the Black Caucus met with the controversial leader. Ellison has denied any contact with Farrakhan since 1995 and has denounced the Nation of Islam, yet the 2005 photo would suggest otherwise. And then in 2013, more evidence arose to show that he again met with Farrakhan.
Black Lives Matter Movement – a movement originating in the African-American community, which for all intents and purposes, implicates Democrats. The movement was intended to campaign against police brutality and alleged systemic racism against blacks. In 2014, after the deaths of two African Americans, Michael Brown (resulting in protests, riots, and unrest in Ferguson) and Eric Garner in New York City, protesters marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City, led by the so-called Reverend Al Sharpton in support of the growing “Black Lives Matter” movement. They chanted: “What Do We Want? — Dead Cops. When do we want it? — Now!” A few months later, retaliation against law enforcement began. On December 20, 2014, NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were targeted and shot in their vehicle in Brooklyn. The following year, additional officers were targeted and killed, for no other reason than they wore a blue uniform.
Hollywood specifically, and the Entertainment Industry in general – Actors, actresses, singers and other musicians, comedians, and talk show hosts such as Kathy Griffin, Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Jimmy Kimmel, Rosie O’Donnell, Peter Fonda, Chelsea Handler, Michelle Wolf, Samantha Bee, Cher, Richard Gere, Sarah Silverman, Tom Hanks, Ashley Judd, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, John Legend, Jay-Z, Snoop Dog, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello, Jennifer Lawrence, Stephen King, Louis C.K., Miley Cyrus, George Clooney, Stephen Colbert, Jim Carrey, Pete Davidson (SNL), and others I can’t think of off the top of my head use their celebrity, take to social media, and misuse the many platforms open to them to make hateful and vile comments about President Trump, his family, and members of his administration. Kathy Griffin posed happily with a fake severed and bloody head of Donald Trump. Others have expressed hope that members of his family would get raped. These are sick and demented human beings who have no decency. They are clearly pre-occupied with sex, sex acts, orifices, and rape.
Democratic Voters – in general Democrats elect representatives who will pursue policies of government plunder and wealth redistribution. They enjoy confiscating money and property from the wealthy in order that its confiscation will enrich them and will further social policies to keep voters tied to the Democratic Party. They willingly ignore God’s commandment that reads “Thou Shalt Not Covet,” and because they rarely earn the money that the government takes in in tax revenue, they spent it recklessly and without regard to actual necessity. Interestingly, while they demand equality of the laws in every other aspect of existence, they have no problem depriving such to the wealthy, joyously and energetically demanding that the rich (and the government decides who is “rich enough”) be disproportionately (greatly, too) taxed. The problem with Democrats, in a nutshell, is that they have no problem and no limits when it comes to taking money from others and spending other peoples’ money.
And so… Yes, Democrats are bad for the image of our country and for decent, honorable, patriotic Americans. And they are simply bad for our country.
Of course this article is not meant to suggest that there aren’t some Republicans who can’t be accused of less than honorable conduct, but there is nothing on the right that runs so foul of decent conduct and on such a widescale basis as on the left.
